Somebody, please slap me upside the head if I EVER take on another diagonal set quilt! The pieced blocks have 25 pieces each, and there are an equal number of solid squares. This is a big quilt. I am down to the last two loooooonnnngggg seams across the diagonal middle. The pressing is especially hard even though I have a big Board. My goal is to have this top done today. Two seams in a day sounds like a pitiful output, but I'll be exhausted by the time I wrangle that final seam. Thanks for allowing the vent.

Oh, I do undersstand! I avoid diagonal placemets too. Seems like things want to go wonky.
Keep telling yourself "This will look lovely once it is finished. This will look lovely once it is finished."
Yes, I do have to say it --now that it's finished and spread out on the guestroom bed--it is lovely! The pattern is Counterpane Quilt by Annette Plog Quilts, and it's all in CW prints, tans and darker border. I keep saying that I'm done with CW colorways, but I do like how they turn out.
I'm done, I'm done, I'm done!
What am I going to do next?

Something drop dead easy in bright colors.
Go to Jordan Fabrics and find a goodie. Here's a pretty one for you;
Or find something else at Jordan Fabrics that floats your boat.
I'm sorry you're having trouble. :( I love diagonal set...but it took me some practice to figure out how to press it, etc.
Congrats on your finish! I can't wait to see a picture - it sounds pretty.
I'm so bad at posting pictures, but here's a link to the pattern. I didn't use a floral in the border, but it is a dark brown CW print.

What a beautiful, and complex looking pattern. I love civil war fabrics. I bet yours is stunning.
